Parameter downwelling_​spectral_​radiance_​in_​sea_​water

Properties

Properties of the parameter downwelling_​spectral_​radiance_​in_​sea_​water
Name downwelling_spectral_radiance_in_sea_water
Description Downwelling radiation is radiation from above. It does not mean "net downward". "spectral" means per unit wavelength or as a function of wavelength; spectral quantities are sometimes called "monochromatic". Radiation wavelength has standard name radiation_wavelength. Radiance is the radiative flux in a particular direction, per unit of solid angle. The direction from which it is coming must be specified, for instance with a coordinate of zenith_angle. If the radiation does not depend on direction, a standard name of isotropic radiance should be chosen instead.
AMIP code (Library of AMIP Data Transmission Standards) not specified
